The Common Core State Standards prepare our students to succeed!

Three years ago, Rhode Island teachers began preparing to use the Common Core State Standards in their work with our students. The Common Core standards are designed to ensure that students – regardless of their state of residence - leave a particular grade level with the same set of skills. I am pleased to share that this year, the standards are fully implemented in schools all over the state.
